Ovulation is the process in the menstrual cycle by which a mature ovarian follicle ruptures and discharges an ovum (also known as an oocyte, female gamete, or casually, an egg) that participates in reproduction. Ovulation also occurs in the estrous cycle of animals, which differs in many fundamental ways to the menstrual cycle.
Generic Clomid medicine is indicated for patients with hormonal stimulation deficiencies who are not capable of producing follicles and releasing eggs in ovulation. Generic Clomid medicine stimulates the release of hormones to aid a woman to ovulate.
The direct link between Clomid and ovulation is beyond doubt. However, mind that female infertility is not always caused by hormonal disorders. The action of generic Clomid is aimed at normalizing hormones and increasing natural production of female hormones which are necessary for successful ovulation and pregnancy. At the same time, the lack of ovulation can be caused by physical and even mechanical reasons, and infertility in a couple is often a man’s problem. If male infertility and other causes of female infertility are excluded, a woman can safely take generic Clomid tablets to stimulate ovulation and increase the chances of getting pregnant.
Lack of ovulation or anovulation is a common cause of infertility among varies women. In such cases, the most commonly prescribed medicine is Clomid also known by its brand names. If the lack of ovulation is the only cause of infertility, most women on Clomid treatment will achieve a pregnancy within four to six months of treatment.
Clomid medicine works as a selective estrogen modulator, by attaching itself to the estrogen receptor sites in the brain disallowing them to bind with naturally circulating estrogen. In response, the hypothalamus releases more Gonadotropin Releasing hormone (GnRH), stimulating the pituitary to drain more LH and FSH, which then cause the ovary into producing more eggs and follicles, resulting in ovulation. Generally, a woman taking Clomid doubles or triples the amount of estrogen production in that cycle compared to pretreatment cycles.
